We visited four campuses of the University of California to know the details of honors programs being run by individual campuses. Our fact-finding visit included the following mandates: first, meeting with the program coordinators and teachers; second, collecting information/files/documents relevant to honors program at each campus; third, interviewing honor students, and finally class observation of the programs. We spend half-day to whole day on each campus and hereby we report the summaries of our fact-finding site-visit. While we were on the trip trying to see more people and collect more information relevant to honors program, we at the same time started having an understanding that, besides the details of the programs now running, it would be more meaningful and significant to know the history of the programs in the social context, and how the quality of the programs is maintained organizationally. Our most important discovery is that the high spirit of the faculty members, coordinators and administrative officers is the driving force for honors program at University of California. We do not think it totally possible to “import” honors program from California. It would rather be out mission to “create” Japanese-adaptation of honors program that fully incorporates the social background of Japan.
